Garden Spark: Jennifer Jewell presentation
Jennifer Jewell presents Cultivating Place: How a Place-Based Garden Culture of Care Strengthens Places and Their People

Description: Jennifer will explore the philosophy of her Cultivating Place podcast: that gardens and gardeners are powerful agents for positive change, helping to address challenges as wide ranging as climate change, resource use, habitat and biodiversity loss, cultural polarization/marginalization, and individual and communal health and being. Using photos from her new book, Under Western Skies, shell illustrate these ideas by sharing innovative gardens that celebrate western landscapes, including the landscape of Texas.

Speaker Bio: Jennifer Jewell hosts the national award-winning weekly public radio program and podcast Cultivating Place: Conversations on Natural History and the Human Impulse to Garden. She is the author of award-winning The Earth in Her Hands: 75 Extraordinary Women Working in the World of Plants and Under Western Skies: Visionary Gardens from the Rockies to the Pacific Coast. Her greatest passion is elevating the way we think and talk about gardening, the empowerment of gardeners, and the possibility inherent in the intersections between our places, our cultures, and our gardens.
